A/Z Theme - Sights and Sites of Arizona
T - Tasting
Arizona has several wineries; its main place to grow grapes is in the southern part of the state close to Tucson, but there are tasting rooms located all over Arizona, especially in tourist cities like Sedona, Cottonwood, and Jerome.
Hubby and me enjoy tasting and drinking wine so if we are in a location where there is a tasting room, we will go in and sample the wine, and usually end up buying a bottle or two to take home with us.
I thought I would mention how the tasting works in case anyone is not familiar with it.
Like the sign says below, the first step is selecting a flight. Not sure where the word came from in this regard, but a flight of wine can be anywhere from 4-6 different types of wine. They will break them up with red, white, or offer a combination of red and white wine.
At the tasting room, whoever is serving or helping you will pour less than an ounce of wine into your glass and tell you a little about the wine you are tasting; what grapes it came from, etc. You work your way up the wines in the flight and then of course their objective is for you to buy some to take home with you.
Hubby and me will usually get a flight each; usually I'll do the white wines and he the red wines. We then sample each others and then rate the wines on taste, etc.
Most tasting rooms will include the glass you sampled the wine in. We have a few from the different wineries/tasting rooms we have been at. They are smaller than the regular size glass, but we usually use them when we have wine with dinner.
What is your favorite thing made out of grapes?
